TR emphasizes the
boat's lineage: T is for
Touring R is for
the smooth efficiency as you paddle the exciting Harpoon TR,
the new race-bred, touring-honed kayak from Easy Rider.
Sleek as its namesake, Harpoon suits the enthusiast who appreciates
the speed and efficiency of a competition-caliber hull and the
cargo capacity of a true touring kayak. Paddled, it is superb.
Rigged with optional outriggers and performance airfoil sails,
you are at the helm of a fantastic sailing machine.
& video present detailed information on this model and
its many options.
Design Statement "My design intent for the TR included
the following criteria: to provide a kayak for the paddling
purist who appreciates the speed and efficiency of a competition-caliber
hull; the seaworthiness, stability, and cargo capacity for
extended trips; and generous bow and stern cargo hatches for
loading bulky gear.
As with all my other designs, elegant lines and good looks
were equally important.
The TR shares the same gene pool of all the other Easy Rider
CR-kayaks. It incorporates special deck moldings to take advantage
of Easy Rider's innovative Outrigger, Catamaran and high-performance
Airfoil sailing options.
To enhance the open-water safety in adverse conditions, the
TR can be used with our highly refined Paddle-Float Rescue
System or the Instant Outrigger Safety System,
or it can be paddled with a removable Safety Outrigger."
